ONLY since it's an open skill league tourney... I like the fold.
This tourney is about being able to survive as long as you possibly can to accumulate points. If you're not sure you have the best hand, don't risk all your chips and you could easily be up against a K.

If this is a cash torunament, you have 10BB left, so open shove all day long.
